 Join Citymoves Dance Agency for our 18th Annual Celebration of Dance!

Citymoves Dance Agency has created a festival programme to entertain audiences in venues across the city of Aberdeen, including The Lemon Tree, Music Hall, Aberdeen Art Gallery, Anatomy Rooms and the Bon Accord Centre. A series of free morning workshops and classes will be held in our Schoolhill Studio, led by visiting artists and companies. Over the 4-day festival, we will also be screening dance films and documentaries in Cowdray Hall.
